If you want to get a sense of the low-key yet affluent vibe of Brentwood, book a table for brunch at Tavern (designed by Jeffrey Alan Marks), then grab an ice cream from Sweet Rose Creamery at the Brentwood Country Mart, a paparazzi-free shopping center that looks like a barn, but houses Jenni Kayne, Calypso St. Barth, James Perse Yosemite, and a weekend petting zoo for kids. The neighborhood’s main drag—the coral tree lined San Vicente—is filled with enough boutiques and restaurants (Baltaire is the new favorite) to keep you busy for a year.

Quincy Jones, Earl G. Richards, Whitney Smith, and Edgardo Contini.
